CSJob: PhD position “Tensors for System Identification” at ELEC, Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB)

Philippe just sent me the following: 

Dear Igor,

We have an open PhD position at Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium, see below. We believe the topic is relevant to your readers, as it is in the context of advanced matrix and tensor factorizations. Could you please consider posting it to Nuit Blanche?

Kind regards,


Sure Philippe !, Here is the announcement:

PhD position “Tensors for System Identification” at ELEC, Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB)

A fully funded PhD position is now available at Department ELEC, Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). The goal is to develop novel methods for nonlinear system identification using tensors. We will exploit the Volterra representation while aiming for interpretable block-oriented models. Tensors play a central role in understanding and taking advantage of the Volterra kernels. See our paper

We offer an attractive salary, a job in the heart of Europe, and support from a renowned research group. This is a four year PhD project, with a yearly evaluated and renewable contract. The preferred starting date is as soon as possible and no later than Oct 1, 2017.

The specific PhD topic can be adapted to the interests of the applicant. It is especially suitable for mathematicians interested in engineering applications, and for engineers interested in mathematics.

Requirements: Master’s degree in (Applied) Mathematics, Electrical Engineering, Physics, Computer Science, or a related domain. Further requirements include excellent programming skills (e.g., MATLAB) and excellent English language skills. Experience in tensor methods and system identification is an advantage, but is not required.

Please send a two-page CV and a one-page personal statement (motivation and background knowledge) as a single PDF document to Mention “VOLT-FWO-2017N” in the email subject line. Applications received before July 15, 2017 will be given full consideration. Informal inquiries can be sent to the same email address.
